    Hello all, I've been doing the Bryce Lane 50/20 workout (For those interested) for awhile now. Using a sandbag, I do clean and presses as well as zercher squats (each exercise twice a week). I've recently learned about another squat variation called the kang squat (Described here). Its...
  2. Barbell Novice lifter looking for feedback - barbell back squats

    Hi, I'm a relatively novice lifter who is getting back into weights after a lower back injury.

  3. Barbell Easy strength for Squatting

    I’ve seen this discussed briefly in the past on dan johns forum but I haven’t seen it addressed much on this forum. I’d be interested to know from those that have used easy strength if they found it to be the easiest way to increase the squat or if it failed to work for squat strength like...
  4. Barbell Squat form check, please ...

  6. Barbell Tricep/bicep pain during Squats

    Hey, folks! I need insights on the correct way to place my grip for the squat as my triceps/biceps (both arms) hurt when I go for a sub 75-80% or above squat. It's been an ongoing issue for some time now. I've had a couple of dozen PT sessions for the same but the pain resurfaces each time I...
  7. Kettlebell Squat goals

    What would people recommend for a double front squat goal? For example the press has the goal of 5 ladders x 1-5 in rite of passage, the swing and snatch have the 100 reps in 5 min goal. If I were to train front squats (asymmetrical or with even bells) as a main lift, what would be a good...
  8. Kettlebell Double kettlebell burned me out

    I did double kettlebell squats and double kettlebell presses, and I felt like I got hit by a bus on my 3rd set of 5 reps. Why are double kettlebell lifts so taxing? Even compared to a barbell, double kettlebells are taxing like hell. Why does it burn out my system so much?

  11. Other/Mixed Leg exercises variations and knee safety

    Although I don’t suffer from any serious knee injury, I expercience some mild knee aches occasionally and I want to fix that. I did some research and I would like to find out which of these movements are safe and which are not: 1. Steve Maxwell recommends a wall squat and wall sit variations...
  12. Other/Mixed Are squats enough for the legs?

    Is doing squats alone (no deadlifts or swings) going to cause any structural/postural imbalances? I have to skip those because of spinal issues and I'm wondering if it's gonna cause problems by not working the hamstrings enough and overdeveloping the quads.
